Early action or rolling admission?

<p>Started to fill out my UMich application, but wasn't sure whether or not to select EA or rolling admission. I'm applying ED to Northwestern, so I can apply EA to Michigan (right?).</p>

<p>But which gets an earlier decision - EA or rolling? I assume EA, but I'm not sure.</p>

<p>I didn't know Michigan still had rolling admission
Also rolling will come between two weeks to a month after you send in the app if I am right, so depending on when you send in the app EA or rolling could be quicker</p>

<p>I am pretty sure you want to put down Early Action. I don't think anyone in Rolling Admission found out his or her decision before an EA student (that includes defers). Keep in mind, I'm not a 100% sure. I know some people who got accepted through Rolling decision in Jan, a month after EA decisons.</p>

<p>All EA were notified by the December deadline but many, many were deferred. Then some regular decision people heard a definative answer before the deferred EA's.</p>

<p>I think that EA got a decision by december, and that regular decision operated on a rolling basis.</p>

<p>If you are deferred EA, are you placed into the rolling admissions pool or are you separately evaluated after rolling?</p>

<p>Ark - it seemed to operate as the former.</p>

<p>Rolling admission was not very rolling this year. Most people found out in late March/early April, no matter when they applied. I'd do EA because you'll know by a set date instead of "eventually."</p>

<p>Just do Early Action, there's no reason not to unless you can't for some other college. You can find out earlier and you get it done and over with</p>

<p>Apply early action</p>
